A specialist working breed rather than average every day companion, the Canadian Eskimo Dog is bred to pull weights of up to 80kg, over 70 miles per day in harsh Arctic conditions. They like life gregarious, in a gang of people and dogs, and they like things cold! The average pet dog owner will struggle to provide a life style the Canadian Eskimo dog will thrive in. Attempts to do so without being willing to lead a very different lifestyle will result in a destructive, loud and unhappy dog. In a group, with plenty of exercise however, the Canadian Eskimo is affectionate, playful and curious.
